David Ord sides with a Tom George-trained top weight at Wincanton on Thursday as he looks to get back to winning ways.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, January 17

AIR NAVIGATOR looks the answer to the Healthy Pets Chase at Wincanton on Thursday.

Tom George's charge made the perfect start to his chasing career when winning a similar contest at Ffos Las in November, beating subsequent Newbury winner Sir Egbert.

On the face of it he was disappointing at Exeter next time but was never going to land a blow having found himself with too much to do after leaving the back straight.

He appeals as still being well handicapped and can successfully concede weight all round.

The danger is Cracking Destiny who travelled strongly and looked all over the winner at Bangor last time only to be cut down by Gone Platinum after the last. He's yet to get his head in front in a seven-race career.
